Over 125,000 Tesla vehicles are recalled amid increased injury risk, As a result of a malfunction in the seat belt warning system, Elon Musk’s Tesla company is recalling 125,227 cars in the United States, as announced on Friday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Tesla vehicles have been produced since 2001.

A report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that the vehicles did not adhere to the federal safety regulations.

There are several vehicles that are affected by this recall, including the Model S, the Model X, the Model 3 and the Model Y from the years 2012-2024 and from 2020-2023.

In order to resolve the issue, the tech billionaire’s company will release a software update that will be downloaded and deployed over the air in June.

The driver will then be independent from the seat occupancy sensor in the driver’s seat and the seat belt reminder signals will be activated primarily based on the driver’s seat belt buckle and the ignition status rather than the occupancy sensor in the driver’s seat.

The company has recalled a number of vehicles in the past, but this is not the first time the company has done so.

A software malfunction in the company’s Model S, X, and Y vehicles in January had led Tesla to recall 200,000 cars in the United States because it could reduce the visibility of people reversing their vehicles.

The company recalled 3,878 Cybertrucks back in April to fix a problem that could cause the accelerator pedal pad to come loose and become lodged in the trim on the interior.

In addition, a US regulator was also investigating whether Tesla had provided adequate safeguards following a series of accidents in December with the recall of more than 2 million vehicles to install new Autopilot safety features.
